Somewhere to Chill

Overheard one lunchtime ......

If only we had a place to chill, somewhere to eat my lunch and finish my maths homework.

My answer to your wishes is YES, you will! If only we can raise enough funds to complete our fantastic new build Annexe at Wellspring, Wirksworth, designed with a shiny, spotless kitchen, opening to a light and airy 'Drop-in Cafe', a perfectly sized meeting room with all the usual accessible facilities you'd expect. We want to create a Community space so vital to our small vibrant town. We are passionate about giving this hard working local community what it deserves, with it's Arts Festival and Well dressing, carnival weekend, community theatre productions, music events, Book fair, Open Gardens, Climate Aware groups and so much more.

This small but perfectly formed new build will be a shared space, a meeting place, a touching base for Mum's with toddlers, kids with uniforms, teens with 'nowhere' to hang out! sewers with machines, artists with displays, bakers with cakes, gardeners with..... it's endless. A place for coffee, cooking meals for those who can't afford to, don't know how to. Groups with lots to say, or nothing to say! groups that sing, read, make music, drama, quiz, debate, discuss and worship.

Our vision is to complete a beautiful purpose built, modern, sustainable, clean environment for all to enjoy, a welcoming, safe space especially for those who need a bit of love and care, (and let's face it, we could all do with a bit of that right now) and we are almost there. We have already started the building work; we've even buried a Time Capsule Wellspring Wirksworth.

So now we will finish it, that is, with your help, we will. Thank you.

    Hello my generous friends, with just 9 days to go before the start of the Garden Marathon, Ed the ted and I are very pleased to announce that we have reached our target sum of £644, and together with cash donations we have now raised over £708 and counting. WOULD N't IT BE GREAT TO REACH A THOUSAND......... In the mean time we are practicing walking the garden and recruiting friends to count the laps for us because I'm not sure if Ed can count to 644. With grateful thanks from us both.

Me and Ed the Ted are planning to walk a virtual Marathon, round and round the garden 644 times (= a Marathon). As you can see, I'm not in great condition, I'm over 70 years old, like my owner but we intend to meet the challenge on Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th April. Wish us luck
